Dual Spec interface / Talents spec

Much thanks for all the work done on this tool. I am consistently the top dps in many raids and I attribute it  to the gear/gem/enchant selection that I get from Rawr. This tool is awesome!

There are a couple of features that would really make Rawr over the top for me, and maybe someone would like to implement these:

First of all, on my mage, my talent spec is not one of the predefined specs, and as I upgrade to each new version of RAWR I have to create it all over again, (to show up in the dropdown) could this be carried over as part of the character?  Is there a file I can just copy over?  Would there be a point where the file is not compatible with the new version?

Second, I am dual spec'ed arcane and frost, and in order to see which gear I need to equip as each spec, I have to set the talents then go swap around the glyphs, then run the optimizer, then swap everything back. Could you make it easier to track dual-specs so I could switch between the specs and glyphs with a drop down or radio button, and then run the optimizer for that build?

For talents you can just copy over Talents.xml, it should be compatible most of the time unless there are big changes to talent trees (like a completely new talent added or something similar). For two-spec situation I would suggest using two separate xml files for that. You can use the batch tools to help you organize several files, check the help on that.

Ah you mean using two seperate character xml files. I didn't think of that. Good call :)
